The scope of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock stories often provides fodder for some of the odder sight gags of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s adaptation, and Season 4 may be no different. It seems as if 221b Baker Street has sprung a leak in a cryptic new teaser and poster for the 2017 return.
Sherlock will be back in time for Season 4 to soothe your New Years’ hangover, but just in case of a Thanksgiving hangover, we’ve got new Season 4 photos to tide you over. Meet the littlest Watson (of whom Sherlock is clearly suspicious), as well as Toby Jones’ dastardly dapper foe in the latest look!
By now, you know (and have probably seen) Doctor Strange, the 14th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But did you know that attempts to make a movie about Doctor Strange date back decades before Iron Man? In 1978, they even made a Doctor Strange TV movie, in an attempt to recreate the successful formula behind the popular Incredible Hulk TV show. That’s just one of the “strange” facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
Reptilian thespian Benedict Cumberbatch scored a true box-office smash this past weekend as the headliner of Doctor Strange, a long-time-coming solo film for one of Marvel Comics’ most outré heroes. In addition to the distinction of being the first performer in the history of cinema to successfully pull off a cape-and-goatee combo, Cumberbatch proved his bona fides as an honest-to-god movie star with this pivotal role. But a new piece from IGN today reveals that in addition to the Sorcerer Supreme, Cumberbatch also played a second, uncredited role in the Doctor Strange production. (Here be SPOILERS. Continue at your own risk.)
You’ve seen Doctor Strange. You’ve read our spoiler-free Doctor Strange review. Now you’re ready to go deeper. Like Stephen Strange himself, you’re ready for ultimate knowledge. All you know is a wise Celtic mystic to touch you on the forehead and open your “eye.”
It’s a big week for Benedict Cumberbatch, already the victim of his own Sherlock Honest Trailer, and SNL is making no small item of the Doctor Strange star’s first hosting this weekend. Watch Cumberbatch make a dramatic arrival to SNL in the first promo for the series’ return!
We’re getting even more Benedict Cumberbatch than usual this week, between the release of Marvel’s Doctor Strange and the good Doctor’s first SNL hosting, so why not an Honest Trailer to boot? It’s Sherlock’s turn for the elementary roast, and you’ll never not notice Martin Freeman’s adorable running again.
It seems like whenever a new blockbuster comes out, it’s on the cutting edge of movie technology. Just this month we had the premiere of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, filmed on 120-frames-per-second cameras, advertised as Ang Lee’s most realistic-looking movie yet. Doctor Strange is also attempting to get into the innovation game, with an IMAX 3D version of the film that, according to the stars, makes it feel like you’re actually there watching skyscrapers kaleidoscoping around you.
Doctor Strange hits theaters next week, introducing Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme to the Marvel Cinematic Universe — along with some mysticism and a handful of otherworldly dimensions (and their threats). Ahead of the film’s release date, we learned that Cumberbatch will reprise his role for Avengers: Infinity War, and according to the actor, he might just be the thing that helps get the team back together following the events of Civil War.
Benedict Cumberbatch is having an even brighter moment in the spotlight with Doctor Strange and an upcoming SNL gig, so what better time to shore up Sherlock’s return? The world’s most handsome detective (sorry, Batman) is officially returning for Season 4 in early 2017, and has the perfect hangover cure.
